Why Ski Big Sky

Top 5 Reasons to Ski Big Sky

Big Sky, Montana offers Biggest Skiing in America, close proximity to Yellowstone National Park, activities for families and friends and couples

  • 1. Bigger is Better.

    Lone Peak's majestic summit reaches 11,166 ft with 4,350 ft of vertical drop. The expansive 5,850 acres of skiable terrain stretches over four connected mountains. Big Sky's 300 named runs include a 6-mile stretch from Liberty Bowl to the base area and seven terrain parks. When you visit Big Sky Resort you will never have to ski the same run twice, unless of course you want to!

  • 2. We're au naturel.

    The 2017-2018 season at Big Sky Resort was far from ordinary. Powder days were frequent, snowfall was heavy and the season was epic! With conditions like those you won't see us producing any fake snow. The snow gods and Big Sky Resort like to keep it au naturel, just the way it should be!

  • 3. Powder. Lots of soft, fluffy powder.

    Let it snow! Big Sky's average annual snowfall is 400 plus inches. Rock Mountain weather often gifts us with such light, fluffy snow that it's coined the term 'cold smoke'. There are more snow-covered acres to be found than skiers, which means a safer, more liberating experience.

  • 4. No crowds.

    As a destination ski and snowboard area, Big Sky is renowned for having short or non-existed lift lines. The 2017-2018 season alone hosted over 500,000 skiers. With 36 chair and surface lifts, Big Sky has the capacity to carry 38,300 skiers per hour. Less time waiting, more time tearing up the pow!

  • 5. More than just skiing.

    Not a skier? No problem. Big Sky winters offer an array of activities for everyone. Get outside, breathe deep, and explore all that the Big Sky area has to offer.
